Earlier this month, James told his fans his dad had coronavirus.

The dancer said on Twitter: "Just when you think things couldn’t get any worse!

Last night my dad was sent home as the doctors feel he will recover quicker.

"After being in hospital for nearly 2 weeks after his stroke my dad has now tested positive to coronavirus.

"He is also fighting an infection he recently got in his arm (Cellulitis)."

He added: "God, please give my dad a break. Stay at home."

In another tweet, James said: "My dad has always been my hero. When I spoke to him he was more worried about my mum, sister & family.

"He kept saying, 'Don’t worry about me, I’ve got this.'

"The sad thing is today he was supposed to be transferred to another hospital where he would have a TV. He was so excited."

His dad suffered a second stroke earlier this month and James told fans he was heartbroken.
